Since 1900s volcanic ash have disturbed air travel and posed a threat to aviation. Many existing techniques that were used by volcanologists, to study volcanoes and their characteristics, were developed to support the aviation industry. I intend to discuss some of these methods in this post. Seismic Monitoring The term ‘seismic’ refers to earthquakes, seismic […]Read more "Volcanoes and Aviation: Part 2/2"
Volcanoes and Volcanic Activity Volcano is a natural phenomenon and it is caused by converging and diverging tectonic plates of the Earth’s crust. In the last couple of decades, volcanic activity has increased exponentially. There are many interesting theories as to why volcanic activity is increasing. One of the theories is self-evident and that is […]Read more "Volcanoes and Aviation: Part 1/2"
Having worked in the field of product design and development for over 5 years and successfully publishing in peer-reviewed journals, my experience qualifies me to answer one of the burning questions of 21st century among engineering students and young professionals: Which is better, ANSYS or Abaqus? Which is better, SolidWorks or Creo? Which is better, […]Read more "Ansys vs Abaqus / SolidWorks vs Creo vs Inventor"
Many people wonder why a mechanical engineer can’t fix his own car? Or a civil engineer building his own house (physically)? There are valid reasons behind this conundrum. Mainly, it’s because of the nature of specialization. A car mechanic and an automotive engineer may sound the same to a layman, however they both work in […]Read more "Engineer vs Mechanic"
Technology is advancing so rapidly that mechanical and electronical branches have several specializations. At present, even those specializations are further categorized into smaller categories. One such example is of Cranfield University, UK. They are offering a degree called ‘MSc Computational Fluid Dynamics’. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a skill or a method that was common […]Read more "Aero-nautics vs Astro-nautics"
Every CAE program, whether paid or free, have some sort of scripting platform for the users and this may put-off a lot people who are familiar with the Graphical User Interface (GUI). However, coding has the potential to save tonnes of time, once you know what you are doing. So, I have decided to give […]Read more "Quick Introduction to Abaqus Scripting Interface"
